For the first time in the history of the award, two joint winners have been announced in June 2018, namely the artist Mehdi Moutashar and the architect Marina Tabassum. Both winners’ achievement has been to produce work of outstanding quality and contemporary relevance while demonstrating a profound understanding of the cultures from which they come.
